December 22nd .....and He called his name JESUS

Matthew 1:21...And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

An Unknown Author wrote:

"More than 2000 years ago a man was born contrary to the laws of nature. He lived in poverty and was reared in obscurity. Only once, during His exile in childhood, did He cross the boundary of His native land.

He possessed neither wealth nor influence. His relatives were unknown and without influence. He had neither training nor education.

In infancy, He startled a king. In childhood, He puzzled doctors. In manhood, He ruled the course of nature, walked upon tossing billows, and hushed the sea to sleep. He healed the multitudes without medicine and made no charge for His services.

He never wrote a book, yet all the libraries in the world cannot contain the books that have been written about Him. He never wrote a song, yet He has furnished the theme for more songs than all the songwriters combined.

He never founded a college, but all the schools put together cannot boast of having as many students. He never marshaled an army, drafted a soldier, or fired a gun, yet no general ever had more volunteers under his orders who made more rebels stack arms and surrender without a shot being fired.

Time has spread to 2000 years between His generation and the present, yet He lives!

He stands on the highest pinnacle of heavenly glory, proclaimed by God, acknowledged by angels, and adored by saints. He is the living Christ, the Lord of glory!"
